Connect2Care – University of Copenhagen



[Completed project]

PURPOSE: telemedical systems are currently proprietary ad hoc solutions because there are no broadly accessible solutions for connectivity, security and communication. The Connect2Care project establishes an open technical infrastructure for social and health services that complements national and international standards and platforms. A special focus is on software ecosystems and using and extending the results of the Net4Care project.

METHOD: the project works analytically in analyzing and comparing standards and partial technical solutions for telemedical systems and bases its choices on experience in real telemedical systems (e.g. in the COPD area). Furthermore, the project works experimentally in implementing and evaluating prototypes of a connected telemedical platform.

PARTICIPANTS: the partners are the University of Copenhagen, the Alexandra Institute, Intel - Healthcare Group, KMD, MedCom, the National e-Health Authority, the Project Department of the New University Hospital, the Central Denmark Region, Regional Hospital of Silkeborg, Sekoia, Silverbullet, the Danish e-Health Portal (, the University of Southern Denmark, TDC, Aarhus School of Engineering, Aarhus University and the City of Aarhus.

FUNDING: the project is funded by the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation; the Region of Southern Denmark; the Central Denmark Region and Southern Denmark Growth Forum.
